Cub-O is the most poplar orienteering event in North America! The Orienteering Committee extends its thanks and appreciation to the outstanding Troops, Scouts, and Scouters who helped make Cub-O 2013 another FUN day of hiking and friendly competition for Longhorn Council Cub Scouts, parents, and Leaders! Cub-O is a fun Orienteering competition for Tiger Cubs, Cub Scouts, and Webelos held each year right after the holiday break. Lunch is included.

Each team of 3-6 Cubs gets a Cub-O map half an hour before the race starts. Your goal is to hike in the woods and find as many of the 40 orange and white orienteering flags as you can. Plan your strategy to score the maximum point total possible in 2 hours!  Map training sessions for Cub Scouts and parents are held all morning.

Lunch will be served in the dining hall. Meal times are assigned to minimize the length of serving lines. Units may choose to do Pack Family Camping on Friday and/or Saturday night. Scores will be available by Saturday night. After the event, each team’s competition race maps will be available to pick up at the District Roundtable meetings in January or February. This is a rain or shine event: extreme inclement weather (ice or snow) may cause a one week postponement.

Some of us including myself and my scout will go up on Friday and make camp, and camp till Sunday morning. If you are interested in camping the entire/part of the weekend please let Stephen know. If you’re interested in only coming up for the day of orienteering please let me know that as well. I will fill out the necessary paperwork, but will need everyone’s reply by Monday, December 29th. The cost is $17 per person plus $10 if you want a T-Shirt (I’ll need your shirt size when you tell me if you’re going.)

Hope to have a good size group going this year, we had a lot of fun last year.
